Let Me love Me More

Sometimes I try hard
to show you love
and in your pain
of un-forgiveness you
move away
Sometimes I try hard
to love you
and you keep silent
without a word
you laugh out loud
and I don’t know what
to think in your laughter
Sometimes I try hard
to please you and you hang
your head so low
burying yourself in
modern cell as you ignore
my presence
Sometimes I try hard
to love you
and I say to myself
I am finish trying, I can’t
do this anymore
“Please God,
Let me love me more.”

About the author

empressjournee

I was born in Jamaica West Indies, immigrated to the United States of America at the tender age of ten. I've had the great privilege as an uprising reggae singer to perform as an open act for several great singers like Dennis Brown, Calypso Rose and others. I also had the great opportunity to meet Dr. Bettye Shabazz and other great leaders. Because of my divine supreme God, he is using giants and various people to help develop the divinity within and allowed me to see the greatness of his love. I consider myself a singer, poet, writer, and a great performer. I am working on strengthening all areas of my gifts.
